    GigaPianoII: Why the popping?

    I've been muddling through numerous problems on my laptop-based Giga setup. I'm running a Pentium IV, 3 Ghz, with the audio on an external firewire drive.

    When I play a chord of 5 notes or greater, I'm hearing pops that are then going through GPianoII's GigaPulse plugins.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I've tried increasing my GSIF Buffers without amy improvement. I doubt it's the disk, as other sounds are streaming just fine, with many more voices.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Geez...2.54 was a solid machine, and I'm starting to think of regressing...

    If you have all the GigaPulse trimmings enabled, it sounds like your laptop may not be quite powerful enough to handle a 5-note chord. Does it do that with a 4-note or 3-note chord?

    There's more to GS3 performance than CPU and RAM.
    Some experts learn more and more about less and less, until at last they know everything there is about nothing at all.

    More buffer wil help, I think...(on the soundcard)

    Actually, I found the problem:

    After playing the piano for 15 more minutes, I noticed it was actually only one key that was popping. Turns out it was a bad copy from disk...how low tech. http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...te=1&p=301988#

    Thanks to both of you for your thoughts, and taking time to post!
